FOOTBALL TEAM Major Bowles Opposes Athletic' Association?Team Officials j Complimented. Hearty enthusiasm over the brief on.I not at all Inglorious first season of the Richmond Hlnes" football lenin was evidenced lit n dinner given last night at the .Masonic Temple to the team by the Bullfrog Battalion, the looting and Ret-together crowd Inside the Blues. The affair resolved itself into what was generally voted per? haps the most thoroughly enjoyable social affair of the command in recent times. All the after-dinner speakers had words of the warmest praise for the football team and for Captain OHn Richardson and Mannger Slicppurd Crump, who. with nothing to stun with safe resolution, with no scrub team to play against, and with a Ilm lted clientele, got together a team ?which acquitted Itself with credit. Everybody prophesied brilliant things lor the future. Major K. W. Bowles presented a silver-headed cane to Cnptuln Rlch iardson, and/i. fimstinnsler John A. Cutchlus, president of the Bullfrog Association, did the same duty for Manager Crump. Opposes Athlrtlc Association. In an address which was the key? note of the future for things athletic, ?Major Bowles gave several reasons for losing the formation of an athletic relation, which might cause fl'lvl 3, rivalry and an association spirit ? er than a battalion spirit.

UNITED STATES DEPOSITORY FOR POSTAL S/WIHG FUNDS PARDONED MA CANNOT GO HOME Governor Requires Consumptive to Go Where He Will Not Spread Infection. Carrying out his conviction that par? dons granted to convict i suffering with cantOgloUS diseases are against public policy. Governor Mann yester? day placed a stipulation in the pardon of .1. t. Cardwell, of Plttsylvnnlu county, that the man must not live at his home. He Is required t? locate in Colorado, there to be treated for tu? berculosis, or else he must go to an institution for the Cara of consump? tives, lie wll> not be allowed to stay where he can transmit the disease to his family and to others. This decision Is regarded as remark? able Indeed, as it goes directly oppos? ite to all accepted'us ges on the sub? ject. It has been used as an argument for the pardon of n prisoner, suffering from an Incurable disease that he should be allowed to go home where he cared for. and Spend 'he remainder of his life will) his own people. Hut Governor Mann has concluded that this is just Where he should not be allowed to spend his life. Pntnl How In Store. Aside, from this novel feature, the clemency extended to Cardwell Is of more than ordinary Interest, lie was a mcrchnm In I'lltsyIvnnla county, and In the same neighborhood (here lived one I? D. Clark, who had an old grudge with Card well's fnther about a division fence. In an altercation in CardweU's store. Clark was fatally shot. It was stated at the troal that Cardwell was forced to tire in self-defense, but the jury rendered a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree, with n punish? ment of fifteen years' imprisonment. This was in Mnrch of last year?1910. Judge K. -I Harvey, in a letter to the Governor, said he thought the jury found the correct degree, but made the punishment to* heavy. The Governor then expressed the opinion that It was not up to him to retry the case. He did not act Until a certificate wns re? ceived from surgeon R. K, Bowles, of the state 1'rlson Farm, to the effect llu.it Cardwell is Incurably 111 from tu bercnlosls, and will hardly last a year. Then the executive i.ssued the pardon, conditioned upon Cardwell plneing hini sslf Where he will not spread (he in? fection. If he tries to llvo with his hon e people, he will be returned to the penitentiary. St, John's lSloef? Officers. At (in *tntrd communication of St John's Lodge. No. :;.',. A.. F. & A.

The change In date was made be? cause ,,f the fact that on the day final? ly fixed upon, i.ooo traveling men will be In tho city to spend the holi? days with their lumllies, and will be able to witness und take part in the celebration. One week later many of these will have scattered to various sections of the country.

Special songs, with Richmond inter? ests as their themes, arc being pre? pared, and the rendering of these by the high school chorus ... counted upon to furnish one of the big features of the program at the auSitorium. The program committee has been holding secret sessions and has contracted for a number of surprise features which will not be announced either on the program or through the press. Tho committee Is keeping Its own council and is working out a program which] will be as unique as the occasion for i which It Is being prepared. A total membership of 3,000 busi ness men is backing the big home dem. | onstt'dtloil, which will be the llrst ofi Its kind ever attempted In the city.; Stated In smallest compass, it Is for. the purpose of showing to the cltl-i icnsltlp of Richmond In palpable and organized form, the organisations and' the men that are causing Richmond to( forge abend as the South's biggest und most convenient commercial city, (tilt! lo secure a closer co-operutlon he-| Lwcen the citizens and the business men, to the end that Richmond may grow larger, greater and better known!

HEW UNION DEPOT WANTED BY CITY Ciiarlottcsvillc Kicks on Side Tracking of Southern at Passenger Station. YOUNG HADDOCK PARDONED Richmond Man Release! by Gov? ernor?'Robinson to Build Rad ford School. Evidence tor and against the peti? tion of the city of Chnrlollosvlllo for safer station facilities was heard yes? terday by the sjtato Corporation Com? mission. nn,i submitted without argu inent. The lien ring was concluded at the morning session. George Perltins, of Perkins Ss Per? kins, representing the city, placed the following witnesses Oh Hie "stand: 15. p. lladcn, Mayor; C. W. Hulllsh, R. W. Ilolsinger, .lohn S. Pat ton and T. J. Michie. All of these testified that a dangerous side track runs close to the union passenger station, and tlie public must pass over It in going to or returning from the station. Only one accident. It appears, has occurred there, but the witnesses contended that tills fact did not show the crossing was not dungerous. While the main contention revolves ubout this truck, it is evident that the Ciiarlottcsvillc people hope to get a new station or its equivalent as the llual result. For the .Southern Railway, which owns the property. Attorney R. B. Tunstull produced as a witness II. K. Ilutchlns, superintendent of the Northern division. It was explained by Mr. Ilutchlns that the company has Hied Its plans with the commission lit the latter's request, suggesting the placing of a sort of watchman at the point complained of, whose duty it would be to precede* any engine which might pass over tlie spol with a flag by day or a lantern' by night, so us to warn the public of approaching dan? ger. It seems that orders have been issued for this duty, 'nut the witnesses for the city could not recall seeing a ?nan on the Job. Tlie contention of tlie railroad Is that It owes no publ'c duty In Char loltcsvllle which It Is not discharging, and that to do what the people want would be an unjust discrimination In the spending of money where it Is not ne led. to the negleci of places where it is needed.

RICHMOND TRANSFER CO., 800 Kn/rt Main .Street, Rlclimnud, Vn. Pittsylvania Senator to Be Hon? ored?Holt Gets Elections Chairmanship. Developments of tho past few ?luvst seem to Indlcato tho certainty of tlie election of Senator .lohn F. Rlson. of Pittsylvania, to he chairman of tho Democratic caucus of tho .State Senate In the Legislature which meets next month. There line hcen considerable discussion on this point, but It scem't now to be sottled by common consent, avoiding a light on tho floor of the caucus. It also appears equally certain that Senator Saxon W. Holt, of Newport News, will f,o uhalrraan ol the Senate Committee on Privileges and Election*, succeeding Senator \V. W. Salo. now Adjutunt-Ooneral. Sonator Holt is near the top on this committee, and, while, strict priority doos not rule, the sann: general agreement is aaid to exist as Is the case with the chairmanship Of the. caucus. In 'aklng this place, Senator Holt will lot himself In for nn enormous amount of work. The redlstrleting of the State for congressional and legis? lative representation will ocoupy a groat deal of the time of tho Legisla? ture, with many hearings and all sorts of demands from counties and oltles to be put In or left out of certain dis? tricts. Senator Holt with Judge Mar? tin Williams, of tho corresponding commlttoe of the llouso side, must bear tho brunt of this fighting. For somo tlmo past, It has been con? ceded that Senator Edward Echols, of Staunton, would get the chairmanship of the ComnTittco on Finance. Marriage License.
